Letters

  • Honoring the veterans

     Tuesday, November 11 was Veterans Day.

    I know there were several restaurants between here and Louisville that did open their doors, showing their kindness and hospitality to we Veterans, giving us a free lunch. 

    We are not asking for hand out, only respect for our time we gave in fighting for our freedom. 

    There were many that didn’t come home, giving their lives for our freedom. Just think about this; if we didn’t win our wars, where would we be? 

  • Thank you

     I would like to take this time to thank everyone that voted for and supported me in this November general election. I am humbled to be re-elected to serve as your mayor for the next four years.

    It has been a privilege and and an honor to serve you and I look forward to what the next four years will bring to our wonderful city and, as always, my door is open to you.

    Scott Ellis, Mayor of Shepherdsville

  • Get facts straight

     I feel compelled to write this letter so that members of our community who may have read the article last week regarding the recent Board of Education race will not be deceived by politically motivated untruths. 

    It was stated that while our staff “received only the state required increases in their yearly salaries,” that I renegotiated my contract multiple times receiving “an increase in compensation that has not been at all commensurate with the increase of the teachers and staff...”

  • Vote for Laswell

     As the mayor of the city of Hebron Estates, I would like to ask you to vote for Joe E. Laswell, Third District Magistrate.

    I am a lifelong Democrat, and yes, Joe is on the other side of the aisle. However, Joe Laswell has reached across that “political aisle” and worked with me.

    He provided me with his phone number, so if I ever have a question or needed his help, I could easily get in touch with him.

  • Boos uncalled for

     I had the pleasure of attending the forum the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce  organized Thursday evening. As a citizen and voter in the county, if I were to rate the event, I would give it 10 Plus stars from the greeting and the escort by the ROTC students to the excellent quality of food provided.

    I have attended events sponsored by the Filson Club that do not excel any better the our Chamber.

  • Vote for Rayhill

     I am writing a letter to show support for a candidate running for magistrate. Joe Rayhill is the best man for the job.

    He is hard working, honest, loyal and an enthusiastic person that will do everything in  his power to make sure that the job is done properly.

    I have known Joe for several years. He is strong in his Christian beliefs and exhibits family values that are second to none. He will work hard for the families of Bullitt County to ensure that the magistrate duties are completed properly, as well as in a timely fashion.

  • Vote for Belcher

     Recently, Bullitt Countians voted for a Meade Countian candidate and Brandenburg got a four-lane divided highway.

    Then we voted for a Shelby County candidate and Shelbyville got a new road to nowhere.

    It’s time for Bullitt Countians to stand up and be counted. Vote Linda Belcher, a Bullitt Countians for Bullitt County.

  • Vote for Portman

     When faced with a decision to make in regards to our mayoral candidates, my vote goes to Faith Portman.

    I am looking for someone I can trust and someone I can relate to. Someone who I know has immeasurable integrity and a good heart.

    She has worked in our public school system for 24 years, devoted to the education of our community’s youth. I honor a person willing to commit themselves to an endeavor, such as educating a community. I’ve seen her with our students and it tells me so much about who she is.

  • Vote for Higgins

     I commend the voters for recognizing the need to make changes to Fiscal Court and would highly recommend Mike Higgins for Third District magistrate.

    Mike would be a great addition to our fiscal court. Mike is someone with a vision for Bullitt County, passionate, caring, interested in improving Bullitt County and moving it forward.

    The citizens deserve officials that want to help everyone and do what is best for the whole county. Mike Higgins will be a magistrate that will listen, have an opinion, make a decision and not hold back progress.

  • Vote for Wooldridge

     I take great pleasure in endorsing John Wooldridge for county attorney in the upcoming election.

    John has served with distinction as assistant commonwealth attorney, master commissioner of the Bullitt Circuit Court and commonwealth attorney for Bullitt County.

    Former Circuit Judge Athol Lee Taylor and I employed John to work in our law firm. I found John to be a tireless worker with a fine legal mind. I am convinced that if given the opportunity to serve as county attorney, John will make the citizens of Bullitt County proud.
